I have used corporate versions of Mcafee such as ASAP and On-Access

They are stripped down compared to the versions you have used. This one currently is using about 26MB of Ram, overall they are very reliable, and i have very rarely had problems with it, In many different environments, on different machines, throughout many years.

But i have used Internet security and i dont like it either

I would recommend NOD32, but you sure can't beat AVG or Avast's price tag.

Norton isn't even worth buying now. Symantec has really brought it down the shit hole. It hogs resources and even the freeware programs out there do a better job catching viruses than Norton does.

I've never tried the mcafee enterprise editions before. I'll have to go and take a look at them and see what they have to offer.

I still prefer Zone Alarm suite. Out of all that I've tried I prefer it the most.
